  Giannis Antetokounmpo jokingly channels inner Marshawn Lynch at press conference "I'm just here so I won't get fined."When he sat down for his media day interviews on Saturday, he looked very serious and did his best Marshawn Lynch impression, “I’m just here so I won’t get fined.” Then Antetokounmpo cracked up.

It may not have been Ice Cube level, but Giannis Antetokounmpo had a good day.

At least according to his coach, Mike Budenholzer. That doesn’t mean he’s playing on Tuesday in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, his status remains up in the air.

“He’s had a good day. He’s making good progress,” Budenholzer said. “But I don’t have expectations [on if he plays] either way.”

A good day means he got work in on the court, Budenholzer said. Jared Greenberg of NBATV had more details, including a private workout in front of team medical staff.

In their two meetings this season, Phoenix struggled to slow Antetokounmpo — he scored 80 points between the two games — and while this is a better version of the Suns, slowing the Greek Freek is still a challenge for them. However, if he is healthy, he could swing the series.

To paraphrase R&B singer Deborah Cox: The Hawks are not supposed to be here. “I felt we built ourselves to be able to play on the road,” Hawks interim coach Nate McMillan said. “And, you know, I've told them that, they're built for this.
